Designed by Peter Ayres, we visited this gem of a cafe earlier this year as my daughter’s boyfriend is studying architecture and wanted to take a look. And I’m glad we did – we had a lovely day out along the coast from where we live in Brighton, I hadn’t been to Littlehampton since I was a kid with my parents way back in the 1960s.
The cafe is a funky rust-coloured multi-layered affair, kind of driftwood/flotsamy I suppose I’d call it (but I’m no architect!). But in a good way. We just had very nice chips and coffee as it was quite early in the day but the main menu looked good.
Afterwards we had a enjoyable stroll up along the waterfront where there is an interesting mix of trade older buildings and some new modern waterfront buildings too. There is also the longest bench (in UK? the world?) which curls and does loop-the-loops and allsorts right along the seafront.
